Beautiful picture of beautiful wedding, than you Catherine Even if Paola wore a reather dull color she looked very elegant that day I thought, Very Queenly.

This is one of my favourite Weddings and if memory serves me well Mathilde is also expecting. I hope that they continue to have a long and prosperous marriage. Here's to heavenly Weddings.

I love your post and agree with everything you said except....Mathilde is not currently expecting a baby -- it's only Letizia and Maxima as far as we know.

CP Mary is expecting as well.
Mathilde and Phillipe and their children seem like a very sweet family

I think her family did. They have some money. The royal family paid for the church (cathedral?), the reception site, and the catering (done by the palace staff). I also think that the royal florists did the flowers, as they do for most of the events held by the RF. Her tiara was also borrowed from Q Paola. But that's the joy of marrying a royal! I know the Spanish royal wedding was somewhere around two million dollars (American), so I would expect Phillipe and Mathilde's was somewhere in that range. Because so many of the sites (the most expensive part of a wedding, usually) is almost always a royal location, such as a royal chapel, or a reception venue in the royal palace, staffed by the palace staff (who do all the royal events), the cost for the dress is usually one of the only things the bride's family needs to pay for. However, even that cost may have been defrayed, as the royal family might have payed for it in part, (but I doubt that), or the designer may have given them a discount (since they will recieve so much free publicity). I doubt we will ever know, though, as I don't think that the rf has ever released that info.

Beautiful wedding and I cannot believe seven years have already passed.

Her dress was nice, but her bouquet was a bit large.

What was the sad part of the wedding, where Mathilde cried so hard? Does anyone have pictures and an explanation?

I believe the cardinal referred to the deceased sister and grandmother of CP Mathilde, jonkvrouwe Alix d'Udekem d'Acoz and Princess Sofia Sapieha-Kodenska. The two of them died in a carcrash, two years before Mathilde's marriage. Mathilde's mother Countess Anna Komorowska also got emotional, which is quite understandable of course.

I love Mathilde's wedding dress, it has always been one of my favorites.
They looked so happy and in love on their wedding day.

Everyone is born right-handed, only the gifted overcome it!!
